Ianna Yao

Grade 9

Ianna Yao is a Grade 9 student who designed a dress. The dress is an off-white colour featuring organza material, puffy sleeves and flower details.

Ianna joined the Fashion Forward club because she wanted to try something new that she wouldn’t be able to try anywhere else. Throughout her experience, she learned that she is a visual learner. Ianna found the creation process very empowering, once she started sewing she couldn’t stop. Her advice to future participants is to manage your time wisely because it goes by so fast.
